edit: that last eq setup posted is ridiculous, unless your speakers are made of turd then you shouldnt need to be making adjustments of a few db, not 20... fail
it might sound better to you but its still going to sound completely wrong compared to how it was recorded
edit 2: just tried that eq setup for a laugh, unbelievable.... how can that possibly sound good through anything...
How good something sounds is subjective. If this sounds better to her than it did when her EQ was flat, who're you to call it a "fail"? She's not making you listen to it.
People who say things like "oh it's not what the artists wanted it to sound like" are ridiculous too. Who cares what they wanted it to sound like? What's important is how much you enjoy it, and if changing the EQ makes you enjoy it more, that's fine.
Oh and for what it's worth, my EQ is flat, except a slight boost on the low-end to make up for my lack of a subwoofer.
